key for a distance
« on: July 24, 2008, 12:01:51 AM »
i have to type 0.15 and 0.25 many times and it would be nice if some key could do this, for example ctrl+1 for 0.15 and ctrl+2 for 0.25, this keys must work while a command is running specially with polar, otrack and osnaps references  :roll: :
line, clic for first point, move 90 degrees with polar and CTRL+1 (for 0.15), 3rd clic ...

you could easily do this as 'temporary key overrides' (i'm pretty sure that's the name). just make sure you remove the ^C^C from the beginning so it will stay in your active command.

i mean, here we usually build with bricks, and the standard is to draw walls with distances 0.10, 0.15, and 0.25 for every side of brick, then is very usefull pres one (or two) keys instead of three or four if you need this all the time.

Probably the easiest way is to add the values to your default RightClick Menu ... easy to do and maintain .. or it used to be :-)

If you could be more specific there may be a custom lisp that would do the job.
A DWG with before and after examples would do nicely.

As for COMMANDs the 0.10 can be entered as .1 and 0.15 as .15
